At the age of 36, Zaccai Curtis is already a seasoned veteran in the world of jazz and Latin Jazz. He often performs as The Curtis Brothers band, with his younger brother, bassist Luques Curtis, but for the Dangerous Rhythms series Zaccai has put together a new band to pay tribute to the music of legendary composer/pianist Noro Morales. Recently, T.J. English, curator and host of Dangerous Rhythms, spoke with Zaccai about his upcoming show at Zinc in the heart of Greenwich Village.
